BUDGET ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

The Budget Advisory Committee has worked with the selectmen during several 
rounds of budget request presentation meetings, other working meetings, and a 
formal hearing. We now agree with the proposed budget for 1995. 

Much discussion took place about library funding. The amount now in the pro- 
posed library budget is 3% above the appropriation for 1 994, and is below both 
what was requested for the coming year and what was spent last year. 

Approp. Spent Requested Proposed 
1994 1994 1995 1995 Shortfall 

Free Library $6,171.00 $6,437.73 $7,485.00 $6,360.00 $1,125.00 
Social Library 4,570 00 5,336.38 6,240.00 4,710.00 1,530.00 

Because of the tightness of funding and the service to the children in the school 
system that the libraries provide, it was suggested by the selectmen that perhaps 
the school should budget some funding for the libraries, and that if voters feel that 
the libraries need funding above what is now proposed that it should be discussed 
at Town Meeting. 

The fire department is requesting funding for a new fire engine. Questions were, 
raised about the timing, being so close to the purchase of our last engine and per- 
haps close to a future replacement of the emergency equipment vehicle, as well as the 
type of vehicle and whether the fire department needs it to be four-wheel drive. 
There will be a separate warrant article for this, with much discussion expected. 

On the bright side, spending for debt service on tax anticipation notes realized a 
substantial savings due to twice a year tax billing, almost $15,500.00 under bud- 
get. This allows us to budget less this coming year. Another bright spot was insur- 
ance, with a savings of $9,600.00 due to our insuring through the Municipal 
Association and their having had a good year. 

At the selectmen's request, department heads minimized their budgets wherever 
possible. Excluding the separate warrant article for the fire engine, the amount to 
be raised from revenues and taxes increased slightly from the $468,443.00 
appropriated in 1994 to the proposed $469,781.00, an increase of less than 
1% (actually .29%).

thereafter, the regular fee 

(owner over 65 years of age) 
GROUP LICENSES 

If the number of dogs exceeds 2, but does not exceed 5, the fee shall be $12.00. 
If the number of dogs exceeds 5, but does not exceed 10, the fee shall be $20.00. 
If the number of dogs exceeds 10, but does not exceed 25, the fee shall be $25.00. 
There shall be an additional fee of $1.00 for each dog in excess of 25. 

Proof of rabies and altering is required. 

All dogs should be licensed by April 30, 1995 to avoid any penalty. 

The Town Clerk's Office will be receiving the triplicate copy of the rabies vaccination 
for dogs and cats, directly from New Hampshire Veterinarians for the dogs and cats 
whose owners reside in Orford. If your dog is not licensed with the Town of Orford 
by May 31, 1995, we will be obligated to inform the Orford Police Department of a 
violation of RSA 466:1 . A civil forfeiture will be issued which carries with it a $25.00 fine. 

RABIES CLINIC 

A "Rabies Clinic" has been scheduled to be held on Wednesday, April 12, 1995, 
between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. at the Orford Fire Station. This has been arranged with 
the Oxbow Veterinary Clinic of Bradford, Vermont, the Orford Town Clerk, Orford Fire 
Department and the Orford Police Department. Attendance at this program Is not only 
convenient, but offers these shots at a reduced rate. 

Dog Rabies $ 5.00 

Dogs EPI Vaccine (distemper, etc.) 10.00 

Cat Rabies and Distemper 10.00 

Cat Leukemia 12.00 

If people see an animal they suspect of being rabid, contact the Orford Police 

Department or the N.H. Fish and Game Department; in the case of a domestic animal, 

contact your local veterinarian. 

RSA 436:99, ll-VI requires that all dogs and cats have rabies shots once they reach the age of 
3 months. This became effective on January 1, 1993. The first rabies shot will be good for only 
one year, on a young dog or cat, but a three-year vaccine will be given thereafter. 

Rabies is a viral disease which attacks the central nervous system in mammals including wild 
animals, pets and humans. If untreated, it is almost always fatal. 

Rabies is spread from a bite or contact with the saliva of an infected animal. An indication that 
an animal has rabies is a noted change in its behavior such as the normal loss of fear of humans 
or a display of hostile actions. Rabies is impossible to diagnose without a medical test. 

Rabies is preventable. Dogs, cats, horses and other domestic animals can be vaccinated against 
the disease. If the vaccinated pet comes into contact with an infected animal, the disease will 
not spread. However, humans that come into contact with the saliva from a rabid animal on 
their pet, can get the disease. If exposed to saliva from any animal which may be suspected 
of carrying rabies, the wound or infected area should be soaked for 10 minutes in soap and 
water prior to going to the emergency room of a hospital.

SELECTMEN 

The big event of 1994 was the collapse of the Bean Brook bridge in the northwest 
section of town on August 24. As this bridge serves only the residence of the 
Veghte Fowlers of Piermont, numerous special meetings between Piermont and 
Orford Selectmen and the road agents were held. Due to the anticipated high cost 
of replacing the bridge, application was made to the State for bridge aid. Our 
application was approved resulting in the State agreeing to pay 80% of the cost. 
With the cooperation of the Piermont Selectmen, who felt that the Piermont resi- 
dents would agree to split the remaining 20%, special town meetings were held in 
both towns on November 10. Both towns voted in the affirmative. Plans and bid 
specifications were completed and sent out to interested parties. Bids were 
opened at the Selectmen's meeting on January 25, 1995, with M.E. Latulippe 
Construction of Ashland being the low bidder at $94,692.20. Additional monies in 
the approximate amount of $15,000.00, which represents legal, design, project 
supervision and removal of the old bridge, needs to be added, giving a total cost 
of approximately $1 09,700.00. 

For the third year in a row, the town applied for and received a matching grant from 
the Small Business Administration for the purchase and maintenance of trees. In 
1993 and 1994, a total of forty-two trees (NonA/ay red and sugar maples, summit 
ash, oak and linden) were planted on the common/mall. An additional three sugar 
maples and two flowering crabapple trees were planted in 1994 on the town office 
property Additional trees will be planted on the common and other town property 
in the spring of 1 995 with the grant we received this year. What will probably be our last 
application for a grant for planting in the spring of 1996 is being worked on now. 

It should be noted with appreciation that the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative 
has given a sugar maple to the town for each of the last five years. They have 
planted these on the community field along the edge of the parking lot. 

In the budget we are again asking for money to complete the road sign project 
begun in 1994. Signs were installed on most town roads in November with the 
remaining roads to get signs in 1995. The anticipation of the statewide 91 1 hav- 
ing a start-up date of July 1995 initiated a project long overdue. During the week 
of March 10, 1995, representatives of 911 will be mapping all town and state 
roads within Orford. The map will divide all road frontage into 50-foot increments 
and will show all buildings. House numbers for individual residences will be made 
available through the Selectmen's office to those homeowners who want them. 

We continue with the project of the restoration of town records. To date the town 
records of 1760-1861 and 1950-1978 as well as the Vital Statistics books from 
1742-1970 have been completed. For 1995 we would like to see town records of 
1861-1916 be restored. 



65 



Selectmen (Continued) 

The much needed task of sifting through bags and boxes of old records which 
were stored in the two former Selectmen's offices (the ell of the Orford Free 
Library and the small white building next to the town hall) was accomplished 
through the efforts of Elizabeth Bischoff and Richard Butman. This was greatly 
appreciated. Perhaps the most important outcome of this task was an inventory of 
town reports starting with 1849. The gifts of numerous individuals over the years, 
added to the copies saved in the town office, have resulted in one complete set of 
town reports and a second set which is almost complete. We are missing reports 
from the years 1 891 , 1 892 and 1 902. The report of 1 889 is not in good shape and 
should be replaced. We would greatly appreciate it if someone would donate one 
or all of these reports to the town. Once completed, we would like to have this sec- 
ond set restored and bound in ten-year volumes. This set would then be available 
to people seeking information. 

Richard Butman continues with his job of making necessary changes to our tax 
maps and deed files when property changes ownership or is subdivided. In the 
fall, Richard, with the help of Sheila Thomson, took on the project of mapping the 
town's three cemeteries. Not only does this involve a great deal of site work but 
also research at the town office. Thank you to both Richard and Sheila. 

In recent years our police chief has acted as the town's animal control officer. With 
the spread of rabies and the advice of Chief Jarvis, who felt the town should have 
a separate animal control officer, the Selectmen appointed Royden Daisey as 
Animal Control Officer. Roy can be reached at 353-9534. 

We would like to note with appreciation Peter Angwin's five years of service to the 
town as road agent. During Peter's tenure, we have made significant progress on 
bridge repair, road paving and culvert replacement. 

We would like to thank all those who have helped make 1994 a successful year 
for the town.

SPECIAL THANKS 

A special thanks should be given to former Selectman Paul Goundrey who, on 
November 2, was sworn in again as a Selectman to fill the unexpired term of P. 
Chase Kling who resigned on October 5.

ORFORD CEMETERY COMMISSION 

The Orford Cemeteries are in commendable condition, made so by the untiring 
and devoted work done by Fay Bean and Richard Hill for which we are grateful 
and thank both men. The unusually hot dry summer took its toll. However, in spite 
of the weather, work went ahead and our three cemeteries presented a neat and 
well tended look for all to see. 

Mr. Winston Doe continued his work, cleaning and making minor repairs to stones 
in the top section of the West Cemetery We expect him to continue this work in 
1995. The fences are next - repairs and painting will be started this spring. This, 
as with the cleaning of stones, will be ongoing work. 

Mr. Richard Butman has started work on updating our cemetery maps. Presently 
he is researching the East (or to many, the Davis) Cemetery This is time-con- 
suming and often frustrating work. Reason being, many of our old town and ceme- 
tery records are somewhat vague, and parts of our three cemeteries are very old, 
and names cannot be deciphered. We are most grateful and applaud Mr. Butman 
for the work he has undertaken.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 

The monies allocated by the Town for use for equipment or emergency needs that occur 
have not been used. I feel that these monies, which are insignificant, are still necessary to 
have on hand. 

There was a 911 meeting that I attended along with the Selectmen. The Town of Orford 
needs this 91 1 plan, especially now that we haven't a full-fledged FAST squad. To have 91 1 
come into our town, certain requirements have to be filled. The new street signs are one of 
the requirements. It seems that someone is already taking our new attractive street signs 
down or defacing them. Our town folks can help by reporting to our Chief of Police if they 
happen to see anyone fooling around with our new signs. 

Safety Tip Reminders 

With weather and utility outages, battery-operated lights and flashlights are the safest to 
use. 

Never let candles or hurricane lamps burn without adult supervision. 

Adults with children should remind children when, where and why it is not safe to go on the 
ice and when it is. 

Have sand or ice melt ready for your walks and driveways. Have some safety equipment in 
your vehicles. Blanket, flashlight, jack, shovel, spare tire and a container of sand. Try to 
keep your gas tank better than half full. This will prevent condensation and starting prob- 
lems. 



Have a safe New Year. 



Rita Pease 

Emergency Management Director 



ORFORD FAST SQUAD 



In 1994 there were 63 calls for emergency nnedical assistance in the Town of 
Orford. The FAST Squad responded to 26 (41%) of these calls. 

As of July 1 , 1995 the FAST Squad will no longer be in existence. The reason for 
this decision is that the FAST Squad is suffering from a lack of trained personnel 
to respond to calls. For the past year only one person has been qualified to 
respond to calls. There are others who help with administrative duties. One 
person is not enough due to safety considerations. It is with regret that I 
submit this report.

The Fire Department still has no replacement for Tanker #4 and Equipment #5 is 
scheduled for replacement in 1996. 

In July of 1995 the State of New Hampshire will start a state-wide enhanced 
911 emergency reporting service that will require changing the emergency 
number for Orford-. 

In June of 1994 we were advised that the State legislature has mandated 
a long list of changes in the way fire departments are organized, and 
financed and as to the ownership of property and equipment.* You will find 
a number of articles on the Town Warrant to comply with this mandate 
before January 1st of 1996. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur Dennis, Chief

TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND STATE FOREST RANGER 

In calendar year 1994, our three (3) leading causes of fires were No Permit, 
Children and Rekindles of fires where the fire was not properly extinguished. 

Violations of RSA 224:27 II, the fire permit law, and the other burning laws of the 
State of New Hampshire are misdemeanors punishable by fines of up to $2,000 
and/or a year in jail. Violators are also liable for all fire suppression costs. 

To aid your Forest Fire Warden, Fire Department and State Forest Fire Officials, 
contact your local Warden or Fire Department to find out if a permit is required. 
This also helps to prevent unnecessary response to a controlled burn. 

Fire Statistics 1994 Average 1990-1993 

Number of Fires Reported to 

State for Cost Share Payment 283 443 

Acres Burned 217 246 

Suppression cost = $90,000+ 

Fires Reported by Lookout Towers (1 994) 

Fires Reported 588 

Assists to Other Towers 363 

Visitors 21 ,309 

Fires Reported by Detection Aircraft 89 

Local communities and the State share the cost of suppression on a 50/50 basis. 
The State of New Hampshire operates 15 fire towers and 3 contract aircraft 
patrols. This early detection and reports from citizens aid the quick response from 
the local fire departments

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

In 1994 we started the year off with record snowfall and very cold weather. It was 
a normal year as far as thawing culverts, but getting to them was difficult. The win- 
ter did deplete our winter sand both out of the bank and what we had put up. 
Because the winter was so cold and long, we also used more salt even though we 
are on a reduced salt plan. 

With the purchase of a new backhoe we were able to complete a lot of jobs more 
efficiently. With the extendahoe and ditch bucket, which were not on the old back- 
hoe, we were able to clean out the ends of culverts and run-offs better without get- 
ting the machine too far off the road. So far the machine is performing well with 
no problems. 

This summer we changed culverts on the Orfordville Road, Indian Pond Road and 
Archertown Road. The culvert that was put in at the bog on the Orfordville Road 
was designed to allow the beaver to coexist with their neighbors and the highway 
department. This will save their lives and leave our roads intact each year. 

Paving and reconstruction was done on the Archertown Road from Blackberry Hill 
Road west to the top of the steep hill. There are many projects I would like to see 
finished, such as the blacktop repaired, our bridges refurbished and up-to-date, 
and some of our roads widened and graveled. I know after working as your road 
agent for the last five years and working with minimal budget increases, it's going 
to take a lot of patience and more tax dollars to complete. 

Thank you for your support.

Road Agent

ORFORD FREE LIBRARY 

This has been a transition year for the Orford Free Library. Laura Verry, our dedicated librar- 
ian for many years, retired this summer. The Trustees sincerely thank Laura for her service 
to the Town and to us. Upon Laura's retirement, Kelly Fitzpatrick, our new librarian, began 
his work. Kelly was hired after a job search was held during the spring. We were pleased 
by the number and quality of applicants for the job. Kelly, who resides in Piermont, has an 
extensive library background. We are pleased to welcome him to our library. 

A weekly "Story Time" for preschoolers through second graders became a reality at our 
library as of February 4, 1994. This program was guided by Ann Ballam with assistance 
from Marcia Knapp, Brenda Hook, Juli Washburn and Sheri Clifford. During the summer 
months, this vital and lively program was continued. 

On March 2, a field trip was made to the Mt. Cube Sugar House as a follow-up of Muffin 
Spottswood's book entitled Over in a Sugar House . A second field trip was made to a near- 
by beaver pond to search for frogs' eggs after reading about life in a fresh-water pond. 

We continued to enjoy the bi-monthly visits of the second graders transported by their 
teacher. Sue Kling and parent volunteers. An introduction to the use of the children's card 
catalog was provided by the librarian. 

Our library appreciated the gift of One Hundred Famous Founders written and pre- 
sented to us by Meldrim Thomson, Jr. Additional appreciated gifts of books and video 
tapes were received from Ellinor Dyke, Brenda Hook, Brian Mack, Douglas Tifft and 
Mrs. William Tobelman. 

The Libraries of the Upper Valley (LUV) videos have brought us a wide variety of viewing. 
The Recorded Books on Tape have also remained popular with our borrowers. 

The library hosted two meetings regarding future plans for the Old Town Hall under the 
chairmanship of Carl Schmidt in the spring of 1994. 

Each month there are people who call, write or visit the Free Library, the Social Library and 
the Town Office to seek out geneological information. 

We are very conscious of the gratitude we owe to those who assist us in a voluntary capac- 
ity, especially Barbara Hall. We are also very aware of, and grateful for, the support of the 
Friends of the Orford Libraries.

ORFORD SOCIAL LIBRARY 

This year at the Orford Social Library can be described with many words - sad- 
ness, disaster, change and, last but not least, banner. 

We were all very distressed and saddened by the deaths of two of our longtime 
Trustees, Phyllis Lawrence and Mildred Sunderhauf, after long illnesses. Both 
have been tireless workers and benefactors at our Library. Phyllis' longevity on our 
board is almost immeasurable - our records truly don't divulge, but it must have 
been well over sixty years. 

Change has come to our Board with the resignation of our valued friend, Charlotte 
Keller. We happily have made her an Honorary Member of the Board. She is still 
a familiar figure in our Library and subs in many areas. She comes to Board meet- 
ings when time allows. 

Our longtime treasurer, Ellen Gluek, gave up her duties this fall because of 
the many calls on her strength and time. We are deeply grateful for her devo- 
tion to that never-ending position. Our newly appointed Trustee, Julie Peters, 
is now our Treasurer. 

Another new Trustee, Jude Parker, although she has always been interested in the 
Library, has stepped up her activities as a volunteer especially in the area of Long 
Range Planning. Judy Cross and Ann Davis, who are relatively new to our Board, 
are both interested volunteers. Ann is our Secretary and Judy is our Chair for eval- 
uating and redoing the rules and requirements for the use of our meeting room as 
well as helping in the Library. 

Sheila Thomson, our erstwhile longtime Librarian and now Trustee, is devoting her 
time to our Historical Archives. Trustees Jean Dyke and Ruth Brown give many 
volunteer hours and are our stalwarts on Thursday evening duty. This is a thank- 
less bit of work - many nights are dark and stormy yet our doors are open. 

Our newly appointed Financial Advisory Committee - Joe Davis, Joe Arcolio and 
Bill Cross - have just begun work planning our financial future. 

Disaster from the heavy snows of last winter hit our Library in the form of water 
damage to many books and the ceiling of the old section of our building. It also 
damaged the lighting fixtures. Insurance and a very timely gift in memory of the 
Carrs from their daughter made new lighting and all the repairs possible. 

We would like to thank the White Family of New Orleans and Orford for their dona- 
tion of a Christmas tree and Arthur Dennis who chopped it down and installed it 
at the Library 



75 



Our Librarian, Sarah Putnam, is the real power who keeps alive our many activi- 
ties. The statistics listed below do not adequately reflect the increased use of the 
Library on many levels. The school continues to increase its use of our facility as 
well, which pleases us very much. Sarah gives us many extra hours above and 
beyond the call of duty. We are very grateful and wish to publicly acknowledge her 
fine work and to commend her for her devotion to our Library and all the children 
and residents of Orford.

NILES COMMITTEE 

The Niles Committee was formed in 1988 to dispense by request the interest on 
a gift of $50,000.00 to the Town of Orford by Mrs. Lenore Niles. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Niles, who moved to Orford in 1 950, had a deep affection for our town and Its peo- 
ple. Mrs. Niles passed away in 1988, and left us a generous and unrestricted gift 
to be used for the benefit of Orford and its residents. 

This year the Niles Committee voted to partially fund ($300.00 appropriated) the 
Creativity Camp that is held during the summer for approximately thirty area chil- 
dren. The Committee also voted to renovate the meeting room at the Town Offices 
and to provide a plaque for it, naming it the Niles Room. The amount of $500.00 
was appropriated for this effort. The amounts of $500.00 and $400.00 were paid 
in 1994 for applications that were approved in 1993. 

The Niles Committee continues to accept applications for funds for community 
endeavors and group activities as well as projects to improve community proper- 
ty Applications for the Niles Committee can be picked up at the Town Offices. 



PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS 

Parks and Playgrounds had another busy season with mowing of the Athletic 
fields, common, and schoolgrounds. 

An ordinance was passed at the last town meeting prohibiting the consumption of 
alcohol on Town playgrounds and beaches. 

New docks for the Indian Pond swim program were put on hold because the town 
mower needed a new engine. Hopefully the docks can be purchased for the 1995 J 



season.

ORFORD PLANNING BOARD 

1994 was a very active year for the Planning Board with the major actions being: 

Approved 6 applications for minor subdivisions 9 new building lots 

Approved 1 application for major subdivision 10 new building lots 

Approved 3 lot-line adjustments 1 less building lot 

Revoked prior approval of 1 major subdivision 6 less building lots 
Closure of 1 gravel pit 
Accepted possible opening of 1 new gravel pit 

Net new lots 12 

In January, the Board conditionally approved the controversial Stonehouse Mountain 10- 
lot subdivision on a 5-2 vote. Final conditions were issued and accepted by the developer 
In March. The developer formally dropped the appeal of the 1992 denial of a 15-lot subdi- 
vision for the same area. The appeal was pending in Grafton County Superior Court. In 
July, the Board revoked a 1 990 approval of a 6-lot subdivision off River Road due to expi- 
ration of the original time limits (expired 1 1/93). 

Planning Board officials were: Chairman Paul Dalton 

Vice Chairman James Hook 

Secretary Jonathan Sands 

Selectmen's Rep. Chase Kling 

David BIschoff 

Emily Bryant and Thomas Trunzo completed their service in March. The Board thanks them 
both for their dedicated service. Their experience and judgment will be sorely missed. Virgil 
Mack and Jonathan Sands were elected to 3-year terms at the March Town Meeting. 
During the year, the Board appointed Elizabeth Bischoff to a 3-year alternate term, Roger 
Hadlock to a 2-year alternate term replacing Jonathan Sands and Charles Pierce to a 1 - 
year alternate term replacing Gerald Pease who resigned in April. 

To improve service to Town residents, the Board changed the Circuit Rider's hours from 
one Friday morning 4-hour session per month to one Friday afternoon 2-hour session 
(3-5:00 PM) per month and anytime by appointment. This gives greater flexibility to both 
applicants and the Circuit Rider who can now spend more time on field visits. During 
the summer, Shelly Hadfield replaced Tara Bamford as our UVLSRPC Circuit Rider. 
Additionally, the Board urges all applicants to avail themselves of the "informal discussion" 
process outlined in the regulations before filing applications. It can greatly simplify 
application preparation, keep costs to a minimum and let the applicant know the major 
issues they face before deciding to continue the process. 

The sub-committee studying changes, reorganization and updating of the Sub-Division 
Regulations submitted their final recommendations to the full Board in the last quarter. At 
year-end, the Board is nearing corppietion of its review and expects to present their pro- 
posals to a Public Hearing in early 1995. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Paul Dalton, Chairman

ORFORD POLICE DEPARTMENT 

Providing service to the community remained the primary goal of the police department 
during 1 994. Personnel limitations were often reached due to the numerous events (craft 
fairs, flea markets, antique shows, tournaments, etc.) that required a police presence and 
response to calls for service. 

Concern for the safety of our youth resulted with the following educational programs being 
presented: 

Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.): The seventeen week core program 
was completed with the sixth grade students during the 1993-94 school year. 

Bicycle Safety: This program was again presented to students in the elementary 
school. In conjunction with this program, students were provided with information to 
acquire low-cost bicycle helmets. 

Halloween Safety: Presented to the students of the elementary school. As the result 
of this program, for the second year In a row, a student has turned in a candy bar that 
was noted to have its original wrapper opened. 

New Hampshire Hunter Education: With the assistance of William McKee, the police 
department was again able to sponsor/present this educational program. Completion 
of this program is required for all first-time hunters within the state. 

In anticipation of the activation of the Statewide 9-1-1 System, which is currently sched- 
uled to begin in July 1995, the following matters were addressed to facilitate this program: 

Working with the other departments that comprise Orford Public Safety (Fire/Fast 
Squad), educational materials were obtained that will assist all members of the com- 
munity with this system, and. 

Working with the Highway Department, time was devoted to the placement of street 
posts/signs on the town roads. This is a requirement for this program. 

Unfortunately, unknown person(s) decided to take it upon themselves to remove sev- 
eral of these signs. This is not only the crime of criminal mischief/theft but could jeop- 
ardize the town's entry into this program which is a life-safety issue. This incident is still 
under investigation. 

Information on this program will be disseminated within the community at a later date, prior 
to the system being activated. 

As approved at the 1994 Town Meeting, a new cruiser was obtained this year. 
Specifications for this vehicle, requiring heavy duty systems and a four-year, 60,000-mile 
warranty were developed and sent out to various dealerships. The low bid was submitted 
by Bank's Chevrolet of Concord, and the cruiser was obtained from them. The list price for 
this vehicle was $24,141 .00 with a trade-in allowance of $12,21 1 .00 obtained. This result- 
ed with a net expenditure of $5,143.00 for the old cruiser, or $1,286.00 per year; a four- 



80 



wheel drive vehicle could not be leased for this price. 

New Hampshire Fish and Game confirmed a case of FOX RABIES north of Orford in 
September, and projected that the RACCOON RABIES would make its way into the com- 
munity in 1995. Several calls have been responded to this past year and fortunately no 
cases of rabies was found for 1994. I urge you to obtain information on this matter and 
make use of the RABIES CLINIC which is scheduled to be held on April 12, 1995, from 
6:30 to 8:00 P.M. at the Orford Fire Station. 

In attempting to be responsive to the growing problem of taxes, for the third year in a row 
I have submitted an operational budget that is level funded; the exception being salary 
which is controlled by the selectmen. You will be pleased to note that this budget is still less 
than the budget approved by voters for 1 991 .

In closing, I would urge you to practice "CRIME PREVENTION" by making use of 
the locks on your houses and vehicles. This past year saw a group of transients 
go through the community and numerous attempts were made by them to enter 
homes. Residences that were secured were not entered; however, places that 
were found not locked were entered and the crime of theft was committed. It only 
takes a moment of your time to lock your house; you owe it to yourself to protect 
your valuables. 

Harold Jarvis 
Chief of Police 



SWIM PROGRAM 

Jonathan Smith of Newbury, Vermont was the instructor for the Orford Swim 
Program this year. We had 30 participants despite the late start of the session. 
Jonathan is a certified Red Cross instructor which entitled the participants to 
become registered with the Red Cross for their accomplishments. The Swim 
Program would like to extend appreciation to the departing members of the com- 
mittee, Lori Mack and Debbie McGoff. We welcome new committee members 
Brenda Hook and Marcia Knapp, and look forward to another successful program 
in 1995.

ORFORD SKI PROGRAM 

The 1994 Ski Program has an outstanding year due to the early and heavy snows, excel- 
lent trail grooming and good cooperation by the Dartmouth Skiway and a dedicated group 
of over 20 volunteer instructors, bus and lodge monitors and school helpers. Although the 
temperature was a bit "chilly" at times, we again had no cancellations — two years in a row! 
The 69 participants were a tough bunch and enjoyed the skiing regardless of the weather. 
We finished on a high note with the annual last-day carnival held in warm weather sunshine 
and perfect snow. 

The program offers beginner, intermediate and advanced instruction in alpine skiing on 
eight consecutive Wednesday afternoons from the beginning of January to early March at 
the Dartmouth Skiway. Bus transportation is provided to and from the Skiway. The program 
is open to all school-age residents of Orford and all students in the Orford Schools for a 
nominal fee to supplement funding from the Recreation Commission. 

One Kindergartner and nine first-time skiers made remarkable progress from just learning 
to put on ski boots the first week to all being able to ride the chair lifts and ski the entire 
mountain by week eight. We wonder if all parents could do as well. Congratulations, kids! 

Twelve second and third graders advanced from the beginner category to second and third 
level skiers able to negotiate all terrain easily and make smooth turns. Sixteen participants 
in grades four, five and six are solid intermediate skiers with several starting to push their 
upper grade friends. The fourteen seventh and eighth graders are well on their way to 
"advanced" capabilities demonstrating solid, smooth carved turns on all terrain and solid 
basic skiing capabilities. Eleven high schoolers enjoyed free skiing, getting to put ail those 
years of instruction to the test. 

As always, our thanks to all who again helped make this a very popular and healthy pro- 
gram for the Orford community. This year's special mention goes to Barbara Giambroni and 
Cara Dyke for their dedication and long hours on the J-bar helping the first time skiers mas- 
ter the basics. While many others took their turns with the beginner group, Barbara and 
Cara spent almost the entire season with this level, giving up their time on the bigger slopes 
for the sake of the youngest children. H/e're in your debt! 

The 1 995 season is off to an excellent start with the return of several seasoned upper-level 
instructors and the establishment of a sub-group under the leadership of Paula Spaulding 
to handle just the first-time and beginner groups. We welcome any and all volunteers. 
Come out and enjoy the great winter outdoors while helping the school children learn a life- 
time sport and a north country tradition.

CONNECTICUT RIVER JOINT COMMISSIONS 
UPPER VALLEY RIVER SUBCOMMITTEE 

The Upper Valley River Subcommittee of the Connecticut River Joint 
Commissions has met monthly during the past year to work on its river cor- 
ridor management plan and to advise the states of New Hampshire and 
Vermont, the Federal government and the Joint Commissions on local matters 
affecting the River. 

This advisory group, formed in January 1993 under the New Hampshire Rivers 
Management and Protection Act, includes riverfront towns from Piermont to 
Lebanon and from Bradford to Hartford. By law, the Subcommittee includes mem- 
bers who represent local government, local business, agriculture, recreation, con- 
servation, and riverfront landowners. The Subcommittee is advisory and has no 
regulatory powers. The Town has appointed PatTullar and Carl Schmidt as its rep- 
resentatives. 

This year the Upper Valley River Subcommittee advised the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service on the Proposed Conte Wildlife Refuge, recommending public education 
and stricter enforcement of existing regulations, and discouraged taking farmland 
out of production. 

The Subcommittee reviewed and commented on a number of applications for 
riverbank stabilization, encouraging riverfront landowners to consider alternatives 
such as vegetative plantings. It also reviewed applications from the Hanover 
Country Club to install seasonal, submersible pumps in the River and for a boat 
ramp in Piermont. The Subcommittee visited the Wilder Dam and hosted a group 
of Eastern and Central European conservationists interested in seeing how grass- 
roots natural resource planning and protection are applied in this country The 
Subcommittee testified at a public hearing on designating a no-wake zone asking 
that the State of New Hampshire enforce existing speed laws and pursue boater 
education, and objecting to establishing a no-wake zone in a fragment of the 
River before the Subcommittee has formulated its overall management plan. 
Boat traffic is required to slow to headway speed when within 150 feet of 
shore or another boater. 

The Subcommittee's advisory management plan will address current and poten- 
tial uses of the River and adjacent lands such as sport fishing, hunting, wildlife 
habitat, swimming, canoeing, and agriculture. Members contributed information 
on boat landings and private campsites along the River for a new computer-based 
inventory that has been provided by the Joint Commissions to each town. The 
inventory along with Geographical Information Systems maps of the River are 
useful in the Subcommittee's planning process. To gain a better understanding of 
the interests and concerns of the region's residents, the Subcommittee, with 
the assistance of the Upper Valley/Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission, 

85 



sent out a questionnaire to a sampling of residents. The replies indicated, among 
other things, that 92% of respondents want local governments to take active steps 
to protect the River. The Subcommittee wishes to thank the many Upper Valley 
residents who completed a questionnaire. 

The Subcommittee met with water quality experts from New Hampshire and 
Vermont to discuss the newly released Bi-State Water Quality Assessment, and 
to advise the states on local priorities for water quality improvement. Concern was 
expressed about bank erosion, and the states were requested to gather data on 
toxic substances in fish. The Connecticut River is considered the most vulnerable 
watenA^ay in all New England for future invasion by the zebra mussel, and the 
Subcommittee asks all boaters who have visited New York or Lake Champlain to 
discard bait and allow their boats to dry for 48 hours before launching in the River, 
to avoid bringing these hitchhiking pests into our watershed. 

Residents of the Town are encouraged to attend meetings of the Subcommittee, 
which are held on the third Monday of each month from 7-9 PM at the Lyme 
Town Office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PatTullar 
Carl Schmidt

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS 

The Grafton County Commissioners are pleased to submit the following report to 
the citizens of Grafton County. Despite some major personnel changes during the 
past year, we have enjoyed a smooth transition, thanks in large part to the con- 
certed efforts of our employees, including department heads, our administrative 
team, and the employee council. 

In November of 1993 construction of an expanded Special Needs Unit was com- 
pleted at the Nursing Home and 20 residents moved into their new quarters. 
Family Day was held once again for Nursing Home residents and their families, 
and continues to be a huge success. It is one of the residents' favorite annual 
events. Also, during the year Courity Nursing Home employees rejected an 
attempt to unionize, opting instead to continue with the current employee council. 

During FY 1 994 Grafton County saw the completion of Phase I of the AHEAD, Inc. 
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), used to purchase and renovate 
low and moderate income housing in the Littleton area, and made significant 
progress on Phase II. 

In addition, the Office of State Planning notified the county that it had been award- 
ed a two-year CDBG of one million dollars for the Whole Village Family Resource 
Center in the Plymouth area. Funds will be used to construct a facility which will 
house local human service agencies that work with children and families. 

During early FY 1994 the County Long Range Planning Committee presented a 
preliminary plan for addressing County Courthouse space needs. The County 
hired CMK Architects of Manchester, NH to conduct a feasibility study of the 
options presented by the committee: renovation and construction of an addition to 
the courthouse or an annex as soon as funding is available. In the meantime, the 
Commissioners approved the State's plan for renovating the Grafton County 
Superior Court Office at State expense. 

Once again Grafton County observed April 1 6-23 as County Government Week. 
Activities included an information booth with educational materials and county 
employees on hand at the Powerhouse Mall in West Lebanon, an art exhibit at the 
County Courthouse, and public tours of county offices. The Commissioners also 
recognized employees for their years of dedicated service to the county. In May a 
Conservation Field Day for school children was held at the Grafton County Farm, 
and in June the farm hosted an open house. 

Financially, fiscal year 1994 was successful, in that revenues exceeded budgeted 
expenditures by $738,814.00, due in part to the unanticipated receipt of nearly a 
half-a-million dollars of Medicaid Proportionate Share funds, to partially offset the 
cost of serving a disproportionate share of Medicaid recipients at the nursing home. 

87 



Human Services costs, over which we have essentially no control, continue to 
rise. Savings effectuated in other departments allow us, in our FY 1995 budget, to 
keep our increase In revenues to be raised by taxes to 3.1%, with a total budget 
of $14,81 8,299.00. 

A more detailed explanation of FY 1994 is found in our annual report, copies of 
which are available at our office, which may be reached by calling 787-6941 . 

The Commissioners hold regular weekly meetings at the County Administration 
building on Route 10 just north of the County Courthouse in North Haverhill. 

All meetings are public, with interested citizens and members of the press 
encouraged to attend. Call our office at the above number to confirm date, 
time and schedule. 

Once again, we are extremely grateful to all who have helped make several suc- 
cessful transitions, who have worked hard for the county, and who have assisted 
the Commissioners - dedicated staff members, elected officials, other agency 
personnel, our many wonderful volunteers, and the public - all of whom have 
made our job easier and rewarding. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Grafton County Commissioners 

Betty Jo Taffe, Chairman (District 3) 
Barbara B. Hill, Vice Chairman (District 1) 
Raymond S. Burton, Clerk (District 2)

GRAFTON COUNTY SENIOR CITIZENS COUNCIL 

Grafton County Senior Citizens Council, Inc. provides services to older residents 
of Orford through the Orford Area Senior Services. These services include home 
delivered meals, a senior dining room program, transportation, outreach and 
social work services, health education, recreation, information and referral, as 
well as oportunities for older Individuals to be of service to their communities 
through volunteering. 

During 1994, fifty-seven Orford residents were served through all of GCSCC's 
programs. These individuals enjoyed dinners at the Orford Center, received hot 
meals delivered to their homes, used transportation services to travel to medical 
appointments, to grocery stores, to do personal errands, contributed hours of 
time, energy and talent to support services to the community, participated in 
recreational and educational programs or used our information and referral ser- 
vice, and used the services of our social workers. Services for Orford residents 
were instrumental in supporting many of these Individuals as they attempted to 
remain independent in their own homes despite physical frailties. 

GCSCC staff also works closely with other agencies to assist older Orford resi- 
dents and their families in taking advantage of available programs and services 
which will improve the quality of their lives and enable them to remain In their own 
community for as long as possible. 

GCSCC very much appreciates the support of Orford for services which enhance 
the independence of older residents of the community.

Executive Director

HOSPICE OF THE UPPER VALLEY 

Hospice of the Upper Valley, Inc. is a voluntary, community-based human service 
organization which addresses issues of life-threatening illness, death and 
bereavement. Our emphasis is on caring; we encourage ourselves and others to 
attend to the wholeness of each person and to affirm as well as support one 
another- caregivers and clients alike - in the spirit of love. Services include: direct 
patient/family care; volunteer, professional and community education; patient/fam- 
ily advocacy; case management; and influence in the development of public poli- 
cy The work of volunteers in the delivery of patient/family care is the mainstay of 
our hospice services. 

Our major sources of income are from memorial gifts, individual donations, and 
town support. We gratefully acknowledge the support we have received from 
Orford in the past, and hope you will continue to support our services. 

From January 1 through November 30, 1994, Hospice served 403 patient/families 
In our various areas of service, of which 12 have been from Orford. 

In 1993, a total of 135 patient/family units received Hospice nursing assessment and 
consultation, volunteer assistance with routine tasks or respite care in home, hospi- 
tal, or nursing home. 1 64 families received support and guidance in their grief through 
our support groups for bereaved children and ongoing adult support groups.

UPPER VALLEY AMBULANCE 

Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. has continued to meet the complex challenge of 
providing emergency transport ambulance service to the eight-town region. UVA 
has had another very busy year in 1994. Our efforts to keep costs down for the 
townspeople by diversifying operations have been successful. However, there 
have been some events beyond our control which require the per capita charge 
to the eight towns to increase from $10.00 to $12.00 for the upcoming year. As a 
point of reference, $1.00 per capita equals roughly $10,000. We are continuing 
with the policy of not requiring the member towns to guarantee payment for 
unpaid ambulance bills. 

The Board of Directors of Upper Valley Ambulance has reviewed the budgetary 
needs for the upcoming year. The budget reflects no increase in salaries and no 
increase in training expenses. Medicare/Medicaid has decreased the percentage 
it pays for services and UVA expects to write off over $51 ,000 in those charges. 
We expect to turn over an additional $70,000 in unpaid bills to our collection 
agency. The Dartmouth helicopter service (DHART) has also had an impact in our 
transport services. The contract UVA has with DHMC to transport radiation thera- 
py patients from the Lebanon facility to Hanover for treatment and back will end 
this year in May. There also has been an increase in Workman's Compensation 
fees. The Federal government has also ruled to change the overtime policy for 
ambulance services which increases our expenses. Coupling the increase in 
expenses with the decrease in revenues would require the per capita charge to 
the eight towns to increase to almost $15.00. As indicated above, the Board of 
Directors of Upper Valley Ambulance voted to increase the per capita charge to 
only $12.00. 

The primary focus for the ambulance service is to provide emergency transport 
services. We project a volume of 575 emergency patient transports from the eight- 
town area for the upcoming year. UVA continues to provide DHMC with transport 
services for the ICN and PICU. We expect to do 245 and 80 of these transports 
respectively Also, we expect to do 220 non-emergency transfers. UVA is under- 
taking a more vigorous campaign to increase the volume of our non-emergency 
transfers. Of course, even though we are doing these non-emergency services, 
there is no compromise of the ambulance service to serve its primary mission of 
providing emergency services in the eight-town coverage area. 

We continue to use a mix of full-time and part-time paid ambulance personnel. 
The day-to-day operations of the ambulance service are being expertly managed 
by John Vose, Administrator/Paramedic and Kevin Cole, Field Supervisor, who 
report directly to the committee of Town Directors, who are appointed by the 
Selectmen of the towns. UVA has worked very hard to become a focal point for 
training for the local F.A.S.T. squads and Fire Departments in the region. 



91 



We have set some ambitious goals for 1995. In order to continue providing supe- 
rior emergency services, we have replaced our first line ambulance with a new 
vehicle. It has been our goal since we started providing this service to provide the 
highest level of emergency care possible. We have upgraded our service from 
EMT-Basic to EMT-Defibrillation which allows the administration of IV fluids, med- 
ications and provide defibrillation for heart attack victims. The defibrillator 
machines were purchased with funds donated by generous area residents and 
the highly successful golf tournament at Lake Morey Inn. As of January 1 , 1995 
UVA will upgrade to the Paramedic level. In addition to providing defibrillation, car- 
diac medications and advanced ainA/ay procedures will be available when we have 
a paramedic on duty.

UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE 
REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC) is a 
voluntary association of thirty-one towns. The Commission is concerned with the 
development of comprehensive plans for beneficial and balanced economic, envi- 
ronmental and social growth in the Region. It functions as a research, resource, 
and informational agency, and when appropriate, acts to obtain Federal, State and 
other approvals, grants-in-aid, loans and similar assistance for individual member 
towns and for the Region. The Commission provides technical assistance to mem- 
ber communities in the areas of planning (land use, transportation, water quality, 
etc.), mapping, community development, grantsmanship and grant administration. 
In addition, regional studies, such as our Regional Transportation Plan, and 
regional projects, such as the Lake Sunapee Watershed Management Study, are 
undertaken to the benefit of more than one community. 

In the past year, services such as our Planning Board training series and library 
which features maps, planning resources and U.S. Census data were available to 
all of our member communities. 

In 1994, our work for the Town of Orford included: 

• Continued to provide circuit rider services. 

• Provided information relative to procedure for allowing two dwelling units on a 
lot, the definition of subdivision including court cases and legislation and on 
capital improvement plans. 

• Provided information about CIPs. 

• Continued to assist the New Hampshire solid waste district by provid- 
ing administrative support. 

• Produced GIS soils map for Planning Board, using SCS soil data. 

• Provided Planning Board with model Shoreland, Aquifer Protection, Wetland 
and Erosion and Sedimentation Control regulations.

VISITING NURSE ALLIANCE 
OF VERMONT AND NEW HAMPSHIRE 

We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide this 1994 report on the activi- 
ties of the Home and Community Health Care of the Upper Valley/Mary Hitchcock 
Memorial Hospital Home Health Agency, a branch of The Visiting Nurse Alliance 
of Vermont and New Hampshire. It is our 22nd year of providing home health care, 
hospice and community health services for the residents of your community. 

This has been yet another year of extraordinary growth in requests for services 
affecting all of our programs, especially home visiting. This continued growth In 
home care services was driven by at least two familiar trends: shorter hospital 
stays requiring more intensive home care services immediately after discharge 
and the growing numbers of very disabled, chronically ill, frail older persons, 
requiring longer term care to promote their independence in the community. Home 
visits to the residents of Orford Increased 37% over those reported in 1993. Our 
staff, with their experience, dedication and skill in caring for people in their homes, 
has made it possible for us to not only meet this challenge but also the challenge 
of achieving the highest standard of performance possible for a home care 
agency — full accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of 
Healthcare Organizations. 

Home visits provided by our staff in the Bradford Branch for persons in the Town 
of Orford for the period 7/1/93 - 6/30/94, were as follows: 





Visits 


Nursing 


1403 


Physical Therapy

Speech Pathology

The Family Health Services Program Is available to young families In your com- 
munity This program includes a Well Child Clinic, a Women, Infants and Children 
(WIC) Program and a Home Visitor Program. The WIC Program provides nutrition 
education, food vouchers and health care referral sources to mothers and children 
from low income families. The Home Visitor Program provides professional sup- 
port, information and understanding to parents who are struggling with the over- 
whelming task of raising children. This program affords the nursing and family sup- 
port staff an early opportunity to identify and support parents at risk for develop- 
ing parent-child relationship problems and to develop a plan of care specific to 
individual needs.

PRINCIPALS REPORT 

To the School Board, Superintendent of Schools, and citizens of the Orford School 
District, I respectfully submit this, my second annual report as Principal of the 
Orford School. 

One year ago, as your newly initiated building administrator, I identified via meet- 
ings with faculty and staff, parents and students two broad areas of concern that 
most felt needed to be the focus of our professional endeavors for the 1993-94 
school year. The areas identified were "Communication," both internally (within the 
school itself) and externally (school to community) and "Standards of Excellence." 
It will be my intent to review our progress in these areas during the past year and 
to highlight other areas of endeavor such as curriculum and student successes in 
this report. 

Beginning with "Communication," the 1 993-94 school year saw the establishment 
of several standing committees i.e. academic affairs, math, health and guidance, 
class advisors, lead teachers, and weekly faculty meetings in addition to specific 
area meetings such as guidance, special education, student services, OTA, and 
student government. Each of these committees has objectives unique to their 
area of endeavor which ultimately contributed to the overall school goal of 
improved internal communication. The outcome of the countless hours of staff, 
student and administrative effort has been an increased awareness of the orga- 
nizational, curricular and service deliverance areas in need of attention as well as 
an improved ability to impact same in a positive and efficient manner. Many 
changes have already been made In various areas of the school as a result of 
these internal communication efforts. 

External communication (school to community) has also seen significant efforts 
via "Principal Coffees" which were conducted monthly all last year in various 
homes in the community and through the "Orford Educator," a quarterly newslet- 
ter published under the auspices of the School Board and through the combined 
efforts of faculty, School Board members, community members and students. 
Additionally, committees such as the Long Range Planning Committee and The 
Communications and Parents Concerns Committee also provide forums from 
which school and community members were able to initiate and facilitate on-going 
dialogues about any and all relevant school related matters. This year, 1994-95, 
we have also added quarterly parent-staff meetings with the Principal held at the 
school for specific segments of same, \.e. elementary middle and the high school 
respectively. Meetings held in tuition-sending communities have also been estab- 
lished for the parents of tuition students on a regular and re-occurring basis. 

With regards to "Standards of Excellence," the Orford High School faculty and staff 
have increased minimum course load requirements from five courses to six and 
have raised the failing grade from 60 to 70. We have also modified and increased 



110 



eligibility requirements for participation in co-curricular activities/sports from pass- 
ing four (4) out of six (6) with a minimum grade of 60 to now passing five (5) out 
of six (6) with a minimum grade of 70. The Middle School has also increased its 
minimum score for passing from 60 to 70 and likewise in an age/grade appropri- 
ate manner increased eligibility requirements for participation in middle school 
athletic and co-curricular programs. 

Curicular initiatives K-12, in the areas of Math, Health and Guidance have also 
been undertaken in 1993-94 and are beginning to yield revised programs that 
more specifically meet our students' needs, improve upon delivery of instruction- 
al services and academically are more comprehensive. It will be our intent to 
embark upon these curriculum reviews each year thereby reviewing and updating 
our entire curriculum over a (5) five-year period. 

Report cards and mid-marking period reports have also been revised and updat- 
ed in both the high school and middle school. Hopefully the new formats will pro- 
vide our parents with pertinent information, i.e. their child's progress in a more 
timely and meaningful way. 

Last but not least, I'd like to comment about our Middle School O.M. Team that 
went on to win the State O.M. Championship in their division in 1994 and repre- 
sented us with a great deal of pride at the World competition in Ames, Iowa (O.M. 
or Odyssey of the Minds is an academic competition in which youngsters use 
what they've learned in school to solve unique problems in a competition format). 
Also, our girls' high school Softball team this last year went on to the State Semi- 
finals competition at Plymouth State before finally being defeated by a very tough 
Groveton School this past spring. Congratulations to all! 

In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support in our 
efforts to make the Orford School a stimulating and academically superior learn- 
ing environment. It is through your combined efforts and the commitment of our 
excellent staff that the expectations of our children's future will become a realtity 

Sincerely 

George S. Burlison, Principal 
Orford School District

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Board 

Orford School District 

Orford, New Hampshire 

We have audited the accompanying general-purpose financial statements of the 
Orford School District as of and for the year ended June 30, 1 994, as listed In the 
table of contents. These general-purpose financial statements are the responsi- 
bility of the Orford School District's management. Our responsibility is to express 
an opinion on these general-purpose financial statements based on our audit. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those 
standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about 
whether the general-purpose financial statements are free of material misstatement. An 
audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclo- 
sures in the general-purpose financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the 
accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as 
evaluating the overall general-purpose financial statement presentation. We believe that 
our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 

The general-purpose financial statements referred to above do not include the 
Expendable Trust Fund and General Fixed Assets Account Group, which should 
be included to conform with generally accepted accounting principles. The 
amounts that should be recorded in the Expendable Trust Fund and General Fixed 
Assets Account Group are not known. 

In our opinion, except for the effect on the general-purpose financial statements of the 
omission described in the preceding paragraph, the general-purpose financial state- 
ments referred to above present fairly in all material respects, the financial position of 
the Orford School District as of June 30, 1994, and the results of its operations for the 
year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. 

Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the general-purpose financial 
statements taken as a whole. The individual and combining fund financial statements and 
schedules listed in the table of contents are presented lor purposes of additional analysis and 
are not a required part of the general-purpose financial statements of the Orford School 
District. Such information has iDeen subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit 
of the general-purpose financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly presented in all mate- 
rial respects in relation to the general-purpose financial statements taken as a whole.
